Not too much to say about myself... I'm probably one of the few people who owned an Amiga 1000, and upgraded from a 68000 to a 68010... :) I'm into high power rocketry, and digital video/audio. I reversed the Dolby Surround algorithm back in 1990/1991, and was constructing audio files on my Amiga that would address each of the surround speakers for demo's and such.

I've been programming since about 1984, started writing my own programs in 1985 and 86, starting with simple games, and in late 1986 on, I wrote mostly serial (modem/terminal) applications.

I worked at Mustang Software for 6 years doing support and QA on Wildcat, QModem, OLX, and later development on Wildcat, IMC, ListCaster and FileCenter.

I was in 4 or 5 episodes of The BBS Documentary(http://www.bbsdocumentary.com).
Other than that, I'm a normal guy with too many kids, but wouldn't trade them for anything in the world.

I have background in such subjects as:

  • Cryptography
  • Virus Research/Anti-Virus
  • Data Compression
  • Client/Server
  • Assembly Language
  • Database (SQL/Oracle/Access) Administration
  • API Development

  • Just to name a few...


I'm always looking to learn something, and am never happy just using someone else' code to perform tasks that I could learn how to do myself.

Some of the apps I've written:

  • NNTP Server
  • Security DVR PTZ Camera Controller/Viewer
  • HTML Based Focus Group Chat
  • Wireless POS System
  • PGP Auto-Sign SMTP Server
  • Dolby Surround Winamp Plugin
  • Software Registration Algorithm / Key Generator
  • White-Noise Generator
  • Password Manager Password Vault
...Plus many others, with more being added every day...

My favorite/preferred languages:

  • C/C++
  • vbScript
  • ASP
  • NT Command Shell
  • T-SQL
  • HTML/XML
  • Perl
